Waterproof your own matches

Many plants can be used as an antiseptic dressing for cuts, if you have nothing better. One such plant is St. Johnswort. You can apply a few mashed up leaves to a nasty cut or scrapes, replacing it occasionally,it can heal in a couple days with no scar. It is known to be anti-bacterial, anti-viral, and anti-fungal.
You can waterproof your own matches by either dipping them in shellac, nail polish or melted wax. You may have to scrape some of the coating away to get them to light easily.Camping and Outdoor Tips
